they have an interesting feature... I was looking for an older version 
of my site contactjuggling.org, but was told that the site was not 
archived because I had a fully exclusive robots.txt. I then removed that 
file (only yesterday...), and suddenly, the archive had files back to 
2000! I wonder if they actually respect the robots.txt, or ignore it 
"just in case" the site becomes publicly searchable...
